Porto, Portugal

Porto is one of the oldest cities of the country, and, as such, its path is sinuous and picturesque. It is a unique experience to stroll through its streets and feel the pulse of the city. Take the tram to the mouth of the river Douro and get to know the excellent beaches and the outdoor cafés, visit admiring churches and monuments and encounter the non-conformist modernism of the new contemporary buildings of architects like Siza Vieira, Souto Moura or Rem Koolhaas.
Board on a medieval journey and pound the historical centre, passing by the Cathedral or the Clérigos Tower. By tram or on foot, go down to the peer and experience the feeling of making a cruise on a Rabelo boat, which sail on the river Douro. Take the opportunity to admire the six bridges of the city, visit the Port Wine cellars and taste this characteristic wine in a cosy and refined atmosphere.

Visit the Casa do Infante Museum, The São Francisco Church, the Palácio da Bolsa, the pleasant riverfront and the well preserved Ribeira and Miragaia streets. But same wise, admire the well present modernity in the Casa da Música and Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art.

The Casa da Musica, the Historical Centre and the Ribeira Square, the Lello Bookshop, the Café Majestic, the Port Wine Cellars and the Monastery of Nossa Senhora do Pilar, the Guindais Funicular, Miguel Bombarda Street, Galeria de Paris Street, Cândido dos Reis Street, Serralves House, and Museum of Modern Art, the São Bento Train station , the Cathedral, the Clérigos Tower. And, of course, the contagious joy of the popular festivities, the excellent gastronomy and the wine.
